BREAKING! Dining Plans Returning to Walt Disney World in 2024

For several Disney guests, a common question is “when will Disney Dining plans return?” Disney Dining plans have been a perk greatly missed by guests, and Disney has just announced that these will be returning in 2024!

For those staying in Disney Resort hotels at Walt Disney World who buy a vacation package, dining plans will be available. These allow guests to pre-pay for meals and snacks, and guests can choose from two options:

  •  Disney Quick Service Dining Plan
  • Disney Dining Plan

Both offer a variety of options for the whole family, including food options for kids, throughout Walt Disney World. Be sure to check out our guide to dining at Walt Disney World for tips and reviews and our guide to the Disney dining plan that will be updated with the latest tips as more information is released on the plan.

When Will Disney Dining Plans Come Back?

Dining plans will become available starting with stays beginning January 9, 2024, and this will be open for booking on May 31.

Disney also announced that theme park reservation requirements will be relaxed for all guests and that a new offering for making Disney Genie Plus reservations in advance will be rolled out. We recently mused on when the Disney World dining plan would return.

  1. Glad to hear that park reservations are no longer needed. That was one reason we canceled our trip to DisneyWorld.
